Rapid growth in use of ceramics for electronics, plus anticipated future growth of structural and other ceramics, indicate a need for high quality starting materials in economically interesting amounts. Demands for reliability force current ceramic processing technology to its limits and require further improvements. Synthetic powders and new chemical routes to produce ceramics offer promise of better properties and higher reliability.
